Le Miu Sushi

Le Miu Sushi

What a nice bag they have there at Le Miu.

Tonight, I made my way to the hip and trendy Le Miu, a Japanese sushi restaurant on Avenue A between 6th and 7th Streets in New York City‘s East Village.

After ordering the Sushi and Sashimi combination under the “Chef’s Specials” part of the menu, I figured I was in for a treat. The tab came to $32 total for just the entree.

As I waited for my dinner to be created, I looked around the restaurant and noticed there were a lot of beautiful people. The wait staff was also a bit beautiful, too – but not all of them. I’m not sure I would have been allowed to eat here if I had wanted to sit in the restaurant. Oh well.

Anyway, I received my bag of raw fish (which was remarkably light) and made my way back to the home office.

I pulled the sushi out of my nice bag and laid it on my customary metal tray for devouring. As you can see, in comparison to previous meals, this meal was slimmer than most. No soup or salad. Fewer cuts of fish.

But, the sushi and sashimi was delicious. The cuts were thick and melted in your mouth. I couldn’t recognize all the cuts but I like the piece of fish with the roasted garlic on top. Interesting. Good. Maybe mackeral?

The maki roll was spicy tuna and was adequate.

Overall, I’m going to give Le Miu 3 out of 5 garlic cloves. For my tastes, I want more sushi and sashimi for $32 – and a salad seems like a no-brainer. Wha happened, Le Miu?

On the other hand, this was the best sushi – ounce for ounce – in terms of taste that I’ve had from any sushi restaurant offering takeout in the East Village.
